  • Learn when you should buy a "parts car", how to buy a parts car, and how to make money off the parts you remove from the car. In this episode I fix my Jaguar using parts from a another Jaguar, but first I show you the process of getting a parts car and how profitable it can be if you do it right!

    One big big advantage is you can do a complete engine rebuild and take your time. Then swap engines and rebuild the other. Disadvantages are parts tend to wear out simular, so unless you can see car first not always good deal. Especially sun damaged plastic parts.

    In the UK cars are so cheap there's no reason not to get a parts car especially for older cars. You can buy an X-Type for instance with a blown head gasket in mint condition for £300 if that

    Yes, financially, it may be good, but who is going to have a rusting junk car in their driveway or back yard... Actually, maybe your first car should be the parts car and fix the auction car.. It looked pretty good...

    Jaguar - a great car to practice finding & fixing electrical systems !
    3:00 those are incredibly cheap speakers in electronics. Less than $2 for a large headphone speaker directly from China.

    My town does not allow for parts cars - we have an ordinance that only allows a car to sit on your lot for one week. At that point you have to get rid of it or your neighbors can report you for "cluttering the neighborhood." Still interesting to see how this works - and the risks of getting an auction car. Best TVclip account for learning about working on your car and things you don't know.

      @ChrisFix Really fast in other words. Thanks for sharing, I don't think I could do it that fast but if I take time off I might be able to do it. Thanks for the idea!

    Or maybe buy another Jag for $1,900 that runs and works good.

    This got to be the most interesting and educative automotive channel that I've found so far, Great videos!
    I wonder why the car price fell that much there, from where I am, I'd be better off selling my old car and seek another younger used cars...

    how do you tell the dmv your going to dismantle your car for parts, is there a fee or any special requirements.
    also what If I'm buying a car in one state with a driver's license from another.
    Copart doesn't explain much and I can find much info on google.

    When you sell parts, do you give a warranty? If so, how do you protect yourself from fraud customers who tries to switch their parts for refunds.

    Can you get a parts car that has the same engine but different body. Like a sedan and a wagon? Specifically VW passat

    • DeltaP
      DeltaP 7 months ago

      the parts will be interchangeable for the most part. The rear will definitely be different.
      you could, but I would rather just wait to find one that matches the body type.
